United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Regional Office for Education in Asia and Oceania.
This survey assembles information on the developments and trends in inservice teacher training in Asia, identifies the growing points of innovative approaches for improving inservice teacher preparation, and identifies ways that further education of teachers is linked to programs of curriculum development and the introduction of new teaching methods in schools. Questionnaires were sent all member states in Asia, and those from which responses were received were visited by the professional staff members of the Asian Institute of Teacher Educators to collect supplementary data. An introductory section of the document discusses the background of the education systems in Asia, then stages of development, institutional framework, types of inservice programs, innovations in inservice programs, and some common problems. Further reports on inservice teacher education in Afghanistan, Burma, India, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, and Thailand are provided. A bibliography with materials grouped according to country is included. (PD)
